Even though it was written almost a hundred years ago, this book was super accessible. I thought it was interesting how unlike other novels that dealt with gay protagonists, Maurice almost exclusively focused on the social frustrations of being gay and out, especially in the 1910s. I didn't find Maurice's feelings dated at all; he was extremely relatable and in many ways lovable. He was flawed, but he was somewhat I got to know intimately and understand by the book's ending, which I loved.

My only problem with the book is that it seemed unfocused at parts--I don't really understand now whether the book's central focus was Maurice and Clive's relationship, or if it was about Maurice dealing with his sexuality in general... I also wasn't particularly wowed by the writing or anything else. However, I was wowed by how mature and skilled Forster is when it came to his characters.

I wish half-stars existed because Maurice was super close to a 5 in many ways--super enjoyable read, extremely thoughtful, great writing. ( )

Reading this book I was struck over and over again by EM Forster’s sensitivity, sparsity, and genius. I can’t express how glad I am that this book was published, even after 50 years.

How did Forster create Maurice, off-handedly arrogant, non-intellectual, misogynistic and insensitive, and breathe such feeling and particular life into him? Over the course of the book, Maurice becomes variously enflamed and tempered, confuses himself, understands himself, learns and regresses… do I dislike him? Do I love him? I feel with him.

Clive swings to the forefront now and again, frustratingly opaque with repression. Alec creeps up from the background— is enough time given to him? Maybe not. In Forster’s “Terminal Note” he writes about expanding Alec’s role in his rewrites, and reading the letter in Chapter 42 I got a breathtaking sense of the unexplored depth of Alec's perspective, and I wonder how the book would read if he had been expanded even more. But I’m satisfied. Besides, the end of the book feels much more like a beginning of Maurice and Alec’s story than a culmination.

In general, of course, I’m in awe of Forster’s writing. I wish I knew how to express what he does so well, the wonder of his under-writing. Maybe if I figure it out I can try to do it too.

P.S. Pronounced "Morris", apparently. ( )

An aristocratic British ass battles his own homosexuality. His first love is a classmate, who later turns "normal," causing Maruice no end of torment. In the end he finds happiness with a working class man.
Having loved "Howard's End" and "A Passage to India" I was quite disappointed with "Maurice." I think my dislike stems from two points: 1. Maurice is an extremely unlikable character. 2. I dislike it for the same reason I disliked "The Great Gatsby." That the characters are all so wealthy, aristocratic, and snobbish, that I was unable to relate to their world view at all. ( )

E.M. Forster wrote Maurice in 1912, although it was not published until 1971, after his death. I can see it was a very subversive book in 1912. It might also have autobiographical aspects, as Forster was a closeted homosexual, and Maurice’s wakening to his own sexuality rings so true (with the caveat here that I am a heterosexual female). Foster’s writing also shine in the social commentary of the class distinctions of England at the time. He is too an acute observer of his characters’ psychological responses. Yet..

SPOILERS AHEAD:


My 2014 mind has trouble believing the relationship between Maurice and Clive. Then, I feel that by finally portraying a sexual encounter between Maurice and Alec (the lower class gamekeeper), Forster seem to equate sexuality to a less noble stance. There is something here that reminded me of [b:Lady Chatterley's Lover|32067|Lady Chatterley's Lover|D.H. Lawrence|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1388355518s/32067.jpg|3249302] in that true sexual expression is repressed by the aristocrats, and only the less cultured can really appreciate the rawness of it.

Maybe I am judging Forster on the very issue he tried to expose. Or maybe I am judging him for something that was beyond him to perceive, being a part of it as he personally was. But part of me senses this book as a cautionary tale, I am only not sure if it cautions about the loneliness of homosexuality, the hypocrisy of Edwardian values towards sexuality and class distinctions, or homosexuality itself.

I am glad I read though.
